At the gateway to Monaco lies a hotel at the end of the world, perched on a private peninsula. For over a century now, this discreet, refined little gem has been enthralling the hedonists who find their way here/. Greta Garbo, the Beatles, Gina Lollobrigida, Sir Laurence Olivier, Catherine Deneuve, Robert de Niro, Bono and many, many more have all already sampled the incredible peace and quiet that reigns here, soaking up the soft rushing of the waves, the Mediterranean garden leading down to the sea, the sun-baked private beach, and the hospitality on offer here in this cream-toned building reminiscent of the most beautiful luxury hotels in Fiesole.
In 2004, the hotel’s new owner restored all its former lustre, and then some. Is this a luxury hotel or a spectacular guesthouse? The personality injected into the décor, the precious collector objects from Asia and the contemporary artwork plant seeds of doubt, adding character and a personal touch to this singular place, where the rooms flirt with the edge of the sea like a cruise ship. Spacious, luxurious suites, terraces shaded by fig trees and balconies that jut out over the waves: welcome home.
The experience is enhanced by two incredible extra facilities: The La Table restaurant headed up by Patrick Ringeard, the hotel’s Michelin-starred chef, featuring Mediterranean dishes complete with vegetables and herbs from the hotel’s own garden,
and the luxurious Spa Sothys! Enjoy a dip in the outdoor pool (the French Riviera’s oldest infinity pool and open from May to September) or indoor pool. Follow up with a eucalyptus-scented hammam, cutting-edge beauty treatments and expert massages designed to help you relax.
